It’s no surprise, but four-star running back Bishop Sankey’s switch to Washington is official this morning. Sankey was verbally committed to the Washington State Cougars for over a year before making a last-minute switch, pledging to the Washington Huskies last week just ahead of signing day. He had been the biggest recruit in the Cougars’ 2011 recruiting class, but felt Washington was a better fit.
Sankey’s Letter of Intent rolled through the fax machine this morning at 8:34 a.m., binding him to the Huskies. At Gonzaga Prep, Sankey put together a record-breaking career, snapping the GSL rushing mark and nearly breaking Jonathan Stewart’s state rushing mark. Sankey is rated as a four-star running back, and is ranked among the top-20 at his position in the class of 2011.
